Once a relatively staid technology discipline where innovation timelines were measured in years, radar has seen an unprecedented rate of growth and proliferation fueled by many disparate markets including the military/civil, UAVs, automotive, autonomous vehicles both ground-based and airborne, commercial products and medical—to name a few. Military radars are continuing to evolve ever more sophisticated capabilities such as waveform agility/adaptivity, advanced high-power operation, and new cognitive operating capabilities. Moreover, this is a major thrust in developing radars and other RF systems specifically for unmanned aerial systems (UAS) that places a premium on low cost, size, weight and power (C-SWAP). The commercial sector is likewise experiencing significant growth in similar areas in the automotive and UAS detection and tracking industries. This talk will provide an up to date overview of these recent trends with a contemplation on what’s in store for the future. Specific topics include:

  • Cognitive radar
  • Advanced waveform adaptivity/agility
  • MIMO radar advances
  • Low C-SWAP radars including RFSoCs
  • Advanced embedded computing and signal processing
